    You are VERY naughty!!! I have just clicked to purchase C & C Napoleonics.! But thanks for a very interesting show. As I struggle to paint figures in sufficient quantities to be able to put on games why did I not thank of C & C before?


    • I hope you enjoy it John. It really is a great game. We didn’t get much chance to talk about expansions, but if you like the Naps game you can get expansions for Spanish, Russians, Austrians and Prussians, which eventually means you have scenarios for every major battle of the entire conflict.
      It will just take you an evening to apply all the stickers – remember, BOTH sides! 🙂

  2. My Kickstarter American Revolution version arrived today with the French Indian War supplement. Very nice PSC 20mm figures inside already removed from the sprues. ps Its not called Tricorn. Its called Hold the Line.

    • I didn’t think Hold The Line was a C&C variant…

    • Paul

      To confirm what I said earlier – Hold The Line is not a Command & Colors variant. Whilst both games use a 13 x 9 hex board, the ‘Hold The Line’ system that Worthington games developed uses action points rather than cards to give troops orders.
      The card-driven orders aspect of C&C is an integral part of the game mechanics, so I would contend that whilst Hold The Line has similarities, it’s not a C&C game…

      Looks nice though. I suspect we will see the same figures in Tricorne.


  3. Jay, if you are reading this. How do I download episodes of your podcast? I can’t work it out. I can see how to listen on my PC but I prefer to download to my MP3 player. Help appreciated.

  4. I’ll just start again. Thanks for the clarification regarding Hold the Line Neil. And I will try to connect to Podbean. Thanks mate. I might see you at Salute. If you get hugged by an Aussie, its me.
